I actually sometimes like liver flavors, but... You have to try those two wines with a duck and/or goose liver pate. One taste is not nice, one is scrumptious.

The server said that it contained lemongrass, lime leaves, and galangal, and we found out later that it is in fact a hallucinogen at large doses.

I've got a bunch in the freezer and no plans tonight. Whoo hoo!

Blunt knives are a menace.

Also a menace is a knife you use for the same job every day, then you sharpen it but handle it the same as if it wasn’t sharpened.

N apparently has mild hallucinations (like seeing wavy lines) when she eats galangal.  She had this reaction at Sripraphai years ago and assumed it was because the papaya salad was so hot, but I'm much more sensitive to heat than she is and didn't have that problem.  Yesterday, we were at a Laotian restaurant in Alameda and she had the same reaction to this one chicken dish.  The server said that it contained lemongrass, lime leaves, and galangal, and we found out later that it is in fact a hallucinogen at large doses.  Who knew?

Hmm. They'd have to use a concentrate or maybe an artificial flavor base to get to hallucinogenic levels. Does N know what an ocular migraine looks like?

Someone else asked her that, and yes she does.  She also gets a mild euphoric feeling after the wavy lines go away.
